 I carved a giant pumpkin tonight.  I first started just to get the seeds.  I ended up destroying them because they were soggy, soggy, soggy, then BLACK!  oh well.  I tried.  The inside of this pumpkin was super foamy.  like cutting through great stuff foam.  Pretty cool because it was not slimy AT ALL!  This is only like my 3rd ever.  What a fun evening!

I fixed this!

So my old tenant left a light colored bent wood stool.  It had sat on the stoop and got stained and filthy and moldy.  I was going to put it by the curb and then I decided it would work great for work!  We have a shower in the bathroom and we needed a stool.  so, i scavenged some stain, stained it black and then did 3 coats of poly.  YAY ME! 

Bee flower

I thought this was cool.  There were at least 20 on each flower cluster.  They were napping or high.  You could pet them and they didn't do anything.  Awesome!

Little Free Libraries

So I saw this recently and knew exactly what it was.  Its a tiny library!  Take a book, trade a book!  They're popping up all over and I decided to trade out books.  I stopped, threw the car in park, emergency lights, ran over, tossed my book in and it was easy.  There was only one adult book so i went ahead and took it.  It's Patricia Cornwell.  It'll be a fast read one day.  I now know of one on McLendon and another in Kirkwood.  Maybe those will be better.

Go to and somewhere in there you can find a map of all the registers tiny libraries!

Good morning vietnam!

Oh Jesus, 3:55am, Scott's running late for work (not his fault, they changed the call time) then all of a sudden there's terrible screeching from the kitchen, a dog explosion, screaming, then the dogs catch the villian that was already caught by the glue trap and then it's Turkey (my dog) and a live screaming mouse and Me and Scott trying to pull the glue trap and live screaming mouse off of Turkey. Let me say, that glue trap was WAY under the oven so Turkey shouldn't have gotten to it except the mouse was only half on it and well, that sucked. BUT, olive oil gets glue off. Oh and maybe the jerk ripping the insulation out of my oven is gone.  sorry no pics.
